Sokorn's Group
In this Group: Sokorn, Theary
Sokorn, 49, is married with four children. Two of her kids are married, the older kid works at her business and the youngest kid is still in school. Living in a rural area of Thmor Koul district, Sokorn has been raising pigs for almost five years. To better feed her family, she also runs a small store in the village selling Chinese noodles and coffee.

Sokorn leads a group of two female members. She has been with VisionFund for three loan cycles while her group member is just with VisionFund for this cycle. She completely repaid her loans with VisionFund. The loans from VisionFund help her to have a decent living standard and buy a motorbike.

Now she is requesting a fourth loan. She will use this loan to buy feed for her pigs. With this loan, she hopes her pigs will be healthy and fat, which will enable her to earn more income to build some savings to build a bigger house and keep her kid in school.

About VisionFund Cambodia

VisionFund Cambodia is a Christian organization and microfinance institution that provides small loans and other financial services to improve the lives of children, empower poor women and their families, and grow successful businesses. The organization works primarily in rural parts of Cambodia and has distinguished itself by targeting the very poor who require smaller loan sizes, regardless of religious beliefs, gender or ethnic background.

Kiva lenders’ funds will help the organization to expand into the northeastern provinces of the country, which have historically been underserved and difficult to reach with financial services.

This is a Group Loan

In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.

Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
